Dropspots: a picoliter array in a microfluidic device

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present a simple microfluidic device that uses an array of well-defined chambers to immobilize thousands of femtoliter- to picoliter-scale aqueous drops suspended in inert carrier oil. This device enables timelapse studies of large numbers of individual drops, while simultaneously enabling subsequent drop recovery.
